Ways to Prevent Downtime in Summer Storms or Disasters

ROCKVILLE, MD (July 3, 2012) -

Ways to Prevent System Downtime in Summer Storms or Natural Disasters

Last Friday night’s severe storms left thousands of people without power on the east coast, and three days later businesses are still struggling to get technology back up and running.

More than 300 of our customer’s systems were down due to the storm and approximately 25% of them are still experiencing severe downtime — now more than 72 hours later. Dataprise technologies were also in ‘storm’ jeopardy, but because of our robust disaster recovery and business continuity contingency plan, we didn’t experience a single minute of downtime due to power loss, and we were able to continue to keep all of our data, and most importantly — our customer’s data safe, secure and available for use. For us and our clients that chose to host their critical systems in our datacenter, it was business as usual.

Does your business have a disaster recovery/business continuity plan in place?

Services that Dataprise offers to prevent severe downtime due to power and data loss:

Hosted E-mail

Features & benefits:

  • Clustered and redundant Microsoft Exchange servers, meaning that all of your data is automatically replicated to two data center facilities (east and west cost)
  • Your mailbox, contact lists, task lists, and private & public calendars are accessible from any Web browser
  • E-mail archiving abilities – you can store every email that comes in and out of your mailbox in a transparent, secure, redundant and easy-to-use format

Hosted Phone Systems

Features & benefits:
  • A virtual replica of your phone system configured for emergency fail-over can be stored in an off-site data center providing off-premise up-time & reliability
  • Fail-over: the ability to automatically switch to a redundant system upon failure of the currently inactive system

Virtual Server Hosting

Features & benefits:
  • A virtual replica of your physical and virtual servers stored in an off-site data center configured for emergency fail-over upon a catastrophic disaster or event
  • Your servers are maintained and monitored by the Dataprise Cloud Services 24x7x365


How much money would your business lose if you were without power for 72 hours or more?

If you really value your business, you should consider speaking to one of our contingency hosting specialists, who can guide you through the services that we provide to help you prevent system downtime in emergency situations. Also, creating a disaster recovery and business continuity plan can be the difference when an un-welcomed event occurs, such as this past weekend’s
